Discussion Post: Are There Any Cute Female Short Hair Cuts in Indian Film?

I can’t think of any! So many cute shoulder length cuts, so many lovely long natural hair looks, but what about actual above the ears short hair on women? Is there anything good?

To give you an example of what I mean, there is Preity’s second half hair in Lakshya which I HATE:

Lakshya 2004 Wallpapers | preity-zinta-53 - Bollywood Hungama

Can you think of anything along those same lines of shortness, but actually cute? Or does it just not exist in Indian film? Oh, and you can go to any industry in India, no restrictions!

Oh wait, Parvathy in Bangalore Days! What do we think? Cute or not cute?

    • Good suggestion. Maybe a little too basic for me, but not horrible.

  1. I can think of four that I liked; Saira Banu in Victoria 203 (though really I guess she has hidden her long hair), Zeenat in Don, Navneet Nishan in Raja Hindustani, Lara Dutta in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (is that short enough?).

  2. I like short hair, but not the DAngal haircuts, probably because they didn’t want them. And while I suspect you hate it, I thought Anushka in PK was adorable. My husband likes short hair. I buzz cut my hair, grow it out, and then buzz it again. When it is short I’m more willing to do things like dye it blue.

  3. I can’t help but remember Preity and Anushka’s unfortunate wigs, bad! I can think of Mandira Bedi and Gul Panag who sported short hair in real life and both looked great. Gul won Miss India and was immediately striking because of her hair. She did a few films and may have sported the look in them.

    Mandira hosted IPL when she had short hair, I don’t know about films.

  4. Kendy Zirdo in Android Kunjappan Version 5.25. Her hair is below the ears length. She is from Arunachal Pradesh but plays a Japanese girl in the movie. It is a Malayalam movie about interaction between technology and people.

  5. I like the long hair better, but I am starting to appreciate Shraddha’s hair in Chhichhore a lot.

    Also this girl from Student of the Year!

  6. Parvathy’s hair is always the best. I also liked Mandira in Saaho. Maya Sarao in Thappad is not exactly cute, but it’s very striking. I kept thinking of Manisha Koirala but that was in her personal life and because she had cancer; I don’t think she wore it for a movie.

  7. Hi all, sorry I’ve been offline for the last couple of months. Hope everyone here has been well? So much to catch up on! Looking forward to reading through all the posts 😀

    How about Poorna Jagannathan’s messy curly hippie bob in Delhi Belly? It suits her long lanky face and figure, as well as the character she was playing. P.S. she’s now the mom in Mindy Kaling’s Netflix property “Never Have I Ever”.
